FISD First Day Attendance Numbers Shows Growth Still Going Strong (August 28,, 2007)


The initial attendance reports are in from the first day of school across Frisco Independent School District, and the numbers indicate the district is continuing to grow. A grand total of 26,782 students arrived on August 27 and more are expected in coming days. Last year, the first day total was 23,108, indicating a 15.9% increase over last year and a gain of 3,674 students, according to a report supplied by Superintendent Rick Reedy’s office.

School principals reported that the first day went smoothly. Kindergarten and PreKindergarten students stayed for brief orientations and were scheduled to begin their regular classes on Tuesday. Portables were added at Griffin and Roach Middle Schools and Ogle Elementary to help with over capacity enrollments. Next year two elementary schools and two more middle schools are scheduled to open to relieve these schools.

“We are looking forward to an outstanding year,” said Superintendent of Schools Rick Reedy. “We expect that our enrollment will exceed 27,000 in October and we are working to welcome our new students and to make this the best educational experience available for all of our students.”
